As we drop down Lost Trail we are following along the North Fork of the Salmon River... until you get to North Fork. This is where the main Salmon River joinders and then veers west into the river of no return wilderness, eventually popping out at Riggins, where we will meet again later. For now we head up stream to the river's namesake town.
We were thirsty when we rolled into Salmon so we stopped at the brewpub for locally crafted beverages. This place is great!
Salmon is a great little town, with whitewater access.. A major jump-off point for all kinds of outdoor adventures.
With our thirst slaked, we made like Lonesome Larry and migrated upstream. This is a world class motorcycling road.
We made a quick stop in Challis.
We kept on heading up the road to see what's just over the next hill...
